Dental maintenance is important for your horse’s health and comfort.
It is extremely important to provide proper dental care for your horse. Unfortunately, a great number of horse owners fail to detect the early warning indications that their horse may have a problem with their teeth, and by the time they do, the issue has already progressed to a more serious stage.
Because of this, our expert equine physicians strongly advise that your horse’s teeth be examined twice a year, in the spring and the fall, while the horse is receiving immunizations.
Hunter Stallion Station provides maintenance dentistry including examinations and teeth floating, as well as extractions and wolf teeth removal.
